Detroit Cardiologists Awarded Millions for Retaliation Claim | MedPage Today

Two Detroit area cardiologists were awarded more than $10 million after a federal judge upheld an arbitrator’s decision that Detroit Medical Center (DMC) and its parent company acted with malice in firing them as retaliation for reporting violations at the facility.

Tenet and its subsidiaries previously paid out $1.8 billion in penalties from 2000 to 2020, according to GoodJobsFirst, which tracks companies’ violations. This sum includes two other cases involving DMC.

Another pending case involving DMC was brought by four nurses who filed a lawsuit in June seeking $25 million each in compensation for alleged wrongful discharge, retaliation against whistleblowers, and intentional and/or reckless infliction of emotional distress.Another pending case involving DMC was brought by four nurses who filed a lawsuit in June seeking $25 million each in compensation for alleged wrongful discharge, retaliation against whistleblowers, and intentional and/or reckless infliction of emotional distress.
